How do I access the drain pump on a Whirlpool Duet washing machine model WFW94HEXW2?


Hi Marc,
Unfortunately, access to the pump & filter is harder on the HEXW2 model than the Duets with the removable lower panel.
First you have to remove the lid panel (screws in top rear), then pull slightly rearward and up/out.
Next you'll have to remove the control panel, then remove the front drum boot from the front panel lip. A large diameter thin wire spring holds it in place, located just under the rubber lip edge. Begin the spring removal from a wire tab located toward the lower portion of the lip.

Then remove the door latch screws (IIRC), and the screws at the bottom edge and top of the front panel. The entire front panel must be removed to access the drain filter.

What's F-21


This error code F21 signifies a drain problem and usually caused by a blocked drain filter. Check to make sure that the drain hose is free from obstructions then remove the three screws securing the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You may prop up the bottom front edge of the machine with a 4X4 block of wood or cushion the top rear edge and lean it against the wall for easy access and removal of the screws.

Once the bottom front panel is off, you'll find the drain filter knob. Turn the knob counterclockwise to remove and clean the filter. You may need to lay a towel under the filter to catch residual water before removing it. Manually drain the water, by gravity, from the tub if significant amount of water is still present by placing the end of the drain hose as low as possible into a basin or bucket.

How do you remove the filter???? it doesnt say in the instructions


The drain filter in Whirlpool front load washers is located at bottom front inside of the machine. Remove the screws securing the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the machine with a block of wood or cushion the rear top edge and lean it against the wall for easy access and removal of the screws.

Once the panel is off, you'll find a knob which the filter itself. Turn the knob counterclockwise to remove and clean the filter. You may need to lay a towel under the filter to catch residual water before removing it. Manually drain the water, by gravity, from the tub if significant amount of water is still present by placing the end of the drain hose as low as possible into a basin or bucket.

We keep getting an f35 error on our Kenmore Elite front load washer. Even when we try to restart the load (no soap to rinse it) the SUDS and f35 errors come up. Any suggestions? I don't see f35 in the...


First of all, be sure you are using only HE detergant. Your drain filter is likely clogged and needs cleaned. On the front lower panel of the washer, remove the screws and panel. You will see a drain filter (about the size of a tennis ball). Before removing the drain filter you are going to need to hand bail the water out of your drum or all the water will run out when you remove the drain filter. Slid a plastic trash back up under the drain filter to help contain whatever water you could not bail out by hand. Remove the drain filter and clean it thoroughly. Replace the drain filter, replace the lower front panel and run a rinse and spin cycle. If sudsing error continues and you are using HE detergant, you may need to lower the amount of detergant you are using. However, 9 times out of 10, it is just the clogged drain filter.

Drain wont drain on a epic washer where is the drain filter located at


The drain filter is located in the pump behind front bottom panel. Disconnect power and remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily. Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly.

What is code F 02


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects(Actual drain filter location and procedure below)
• If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump



How to Check your drain pump filter for foreign objects:

Most likely, this issue will be the cause of a clogged drain filter. Use my procedure below to help locate and clean this filter.

First, you will need to unplug your unit and shut off the rear water faucets that feed the unit.The pump has a clean out filter located at the front, behind the lower section of the front panel, that allows for the removal of large objects that may have passed from the basket. You will need to remove the front panel to access this large object filter device. Now, Once you have located the drain filter cap; Push twits and pull out the filter cap that is visible. Clear out any debris and wipe the filter and the surrounding area with a mild detergent. If needed, wear gloves and use vinegar or bleach to remove odors, mold and mildew. Rinse the parts completely, if possible. Next; Remove the drain hose and clean it with a mild detergent or warm water. If necessary, again use vinegar or bleach to remove odors and mildew. Completely purge this hose. Once the drain hose has been purged, Reconnect the drain hose and filter. Next; Place the front panel back on the unit. Reconnect the inlet hoses and plug in the unit and turn it back on for a test run. If the cleansing dose not produce positive results, replace the drain pump.


Click here to access service manual for your unit. The actual component access procedures dealing with this issue will be on page 3-10 in the manual provided under the title"PUMP MOTOR". Front door and panel removal procedures are also described in this manual. This will start on page 4-1. Foucuse on pages 4-3 and 4-4 for front panel removal to access the drain pump and filter assembly.

It is a long drain error and appears when the washer is not fully drained after 10 minutes of draining. It can be due to a clogged or kinked drain hose, clogged pump filter, or the pump is not working properly.
